At first I saw Annie, a German woman walking towards me in the rice field. When I saw her with her child under the hot sun in the rice field I felt ashamed. Is it the time, I wondered? Is she the person, I asked the lord to send as my friend and help with my sons operation? The sadness inside my heart was quickly gone because I met this white woman.
In Manila I am so very happy. This woman became my friend, but not only a friend but a sister, a true sister. I am so happy because I accompany the woman who lives on the other side of the world.
One day, I saw Annie beeing hurt, I also felt the pain. I was looking for her and found her in the canteen here in the Parañaque hospital. She was crying. I didn`t know how to speak to her but I was also crying. Someone of our companions hurt her, and it hurt me too because I don´t want her to feel sad. For me she is true in helping people and she is also a religious person. God knows deep in my heart I accept her as my sister and my family member. That is why I love her soo much. When she was crying I also was crying. When she is hurt and sad I am too hurt and sad. When Annie will go home to Germany I will miss her so much. Because I love her so much as my true sister. She is so special to me because she is deep inside my heart and mind. For me it is God´s will that we met. She helps us, me and my child. It is true that I won´t let her go. Because I will miss her so much.
